Evil The Calling
Another fun bike from this awesome brand
Evil doesn’t always mean bad… As you know, I’m a fan of Evil Bikes and recently showed you one of my own bikes, put together last year, called ‘The Calling’ with their amazing ‘Angry Dolphin’ colour finish.
This is another Evil ‘The Calling’ mountain bike and it’s every bit as fun. What did I do?
I used these components for the build
- Burgtec bars
- Rockshox fork and Reverb seatpost
- Praxis carbon rims
- Chris King hubs
“Road trippin’, turn slashin’, side-hit-jibbin’, nose-bonkin’, sprint-climbin’ attitude, that’s the Calling. Its anti-serious technology guarantees good times 69% of the time (the other 31% you’re climbing).” – Evil-Bikes.com
Evil is the fantastically alternative, Iron-Maiden inspired baby of Kevin Walsh. Evil is based in Seattle, Washington and one of the brand’s other models, The Following, was labelled Mountain Bike of the Decade by Forbes.
It’s pretty simple: this bike just puts a massive smile on my face. It’s so much fun to ride, it’s playful, and it’s bloody great quality.
To the basic frame I added RockShox fork and Reverb seatpost. Another US brand, the RockShox range provides this bike with great suspension and dampers, ideal for taking this machine off road, up-hill, and down-hill – and everything in between.
Praxis carbon rims bring support, stiffness, and strength to this bike. The Chris King hubs are ever reliable and ever versatile.
This was for a very longterm local customer, and they were pretty stoked with the result. It’s a great shape right?

When you get a custom build with The Bike Tailor, you will not just get a new bike, you will also get the benefits of a bike fit too. That means a more pleasurable ride; fewer areas of pressure or injuries; less fatigue, and more power.
